    The OP does indeed have 2000 - It's Geoff69a1 from post 5 that has the 2001 P2.
    I would agree that comparing a 2000 to a 2001 is a whole different kettle of fish.
    The 2001 goes from basic module...

    IIRC, the speedo only reads from the FL tone ring sensor,

    The switch is built into the tailgate latch.
    It's not unusual for the switch to fail after

    You'll kill the AWD if it's not already trashed.
